Elvis Isn’t Just Alive, He’s Handing Out Presents!

ST. LOUIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The King is still in the building, and he’s handing out presents!

That’s the song being sung by St. Louis-based Elvis expert Bill Beeny, who’s “All Shook Up” after recently speaking to a close family member of The King while in Memphis.

Beeny says the relative received the leis Elvis wore in his classic 70s concert film, Aloha From Hawaii, as a gift from the King himself earlier this year.

And while Beeny doesn’t like to pry and ask people who know where Elvis is hiding and what he’s up to, he’s certain Mr. Blue Suede Shoes is living it up out of the limelight.

Beeny says, “Elvis was the most miserable man being Elvis Presley.

Beeny believes Elvis – who would’ve been 72 on his birthday tomorrow (Jan. 8) – has been traveling in Europe and has been recognized, but hasn’t been mobbed because as he puts it, “People still think of Elvis as this young guy. But he’s probably got a mustache, and maybe a beard. People see him, but think he’s a look-a-like because they think he’s dead.”
